Arizona Diamondbacks vs San Diego Padres Prediction

I'm not running to the window to back the Diamondbacks or the Padres, two underachieving teams that have had issues sustaining success. It doesn't change here with Slade Cecconi and Randy Vasquez on the mound, two pitchers who have had issues with control and have ERAs over 5. Two capable offenses and two shaky at best pitchers. Instead of looking at a side, I'm anticipating some offense. Give me the over in game 1 between the Diamondbacks and Padres.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
